Ceramic Matrix Composites Market Size, Industry Growth, Sales Revenue, COVID-19 Market Scenario, Opportunity, and Industry Expansion Strategies to 2026

Demand for ceramic matrix composites in aerospace, defense and automotive industry is the primary factor in influencing market growth.

Market Size – USD 3.52 Billion in 2018, Market Growth – CAGR of 8.5%, Market Trends – Increasing technological innovations and advancements in the market.

The global Ceramic matrix composites market is expected to reach USD 7.02 Billion by 2026, according to a new report by Reports and Data. This can be mainly associated with the rising demand in defense, aerospace & automotive industries and technological innovations and advancements in the market, along with investments in R&D.

The ceramic matrix composites are used in the production of various components in aircraft engines such as nozzles, combustor liners, blade, and shrouds. In high-pressure and low-pressure engine zones, manufacturers use CMC over nickel alloys due to their better performance and durability. The expected growth in the demand for commercial gas turbine engines will subsequently fuel the demand for ceramic matrix composites.

In the automotive industry, CMC finds broad application in brake discs, braking systems, clutches, etc. Lightweight, very high-temperature resistance capability, high endurance to corrosion and oxidation, and other properties of CMCs also fuel the increased application of CMCs in the automotive industry. The focus of automotive industry has been on reducing the vehicle weight to improve the performance and efficiency of the vehicles, due to which, the automotive sector is replacing heavy metals and other materials with suitable lightweight materials.

The swift rise in the price of CMCs may hinder the growth of the market.
